Darby Karchut is an award-winning author, dreamer, and compulsive dawn greeter. She's been known to run in blizzards and bike in lightning storms. When not dodging death by Colorado, Darby writes urban fantasy for tweens, teens, and adults, and is now trying her hand at contemporary romance.

Latest News: August 26,  2014

My contemporary romance, Stone's Heart, is out on submission to several publishers and agents. I am so enjoying this new genre.


Meanwhile, the team at Spencer Hill Press is ramping up promotion for The Stag Lord (December release) and for The Hound at the Gate (January 2015 release).


Life is good.



Just Announced!



Finn Finnegan won the 2014 IPPY Silver Medal for Juvenile Fiction.

The 22nd Pikes Peak Writers Conference

I'll be giving three workshops and a Read & Critique session. This conference is one of the highlights of my year!



Saturday, April 5th

Mountain of Authors

Sponsored by the Pikes Peak Library District 


I'll be joining an amazing line up of authors at this annual event.

Hope to see you there.

Time: 12:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Location: East Library, 5550 N. Union Blvd., Colorado Springs, Colorado

This free event is an annual community program that provides an opportunity for the public and local authors to meet and listen to notable Colorado authors, and for aspiring writers to learn more about the craft of writing. No registration is required. 


2014. What a year this will be! I'll be releasing my second middle grade novel, GIDEON'S SPEAR (February 4th from Spencer Hill Press), and am taking a bold leap into writing for adults with the release of THE STAG LORD (December 2 from Spencer Hill Press/Spence City)


It is also the year I bid farewell to the classroom. I have enjoyed almost every minute (public education is not for the faint of heart), and I will miss my friends and my students.


Still, being able to work one full time job (writing), instead of two, will be a blessing, to say the least.
